Field Band Foundation of South Africa
PURPOSE STATEMENT “To create opportunities for the development of life skills in the youth of South Africa through the mediums of music and dance.” FBF members from different areas across SA work together at performances, workshops, festivals and competitions, and through this interaction, learn understanding and respect for other cultures and communities. Exchange programmes and bursaries provide opportunities to experience other countries, learn new skills and broaden perspectives. South African youth at risk are offered an alternative to build a productive and fulfilling life for themselves by reaching for their dreams and becoming role models and leaders in their communities. At the centre of the life skills programme is a comprehensive HIV/AIDS education.
